I mean the service is great, everyone whom I’ve ever talked to here has been super nice...but the food is just so bad. I don’t know what but their salads are just so gross and everything is just kind of dry/bland.

We ate here last summer... it was just okay. The salad was okay. The pizzas were just okay. Nothing, at all, to write home about.

I avoid giving a 5 to anything but fine dining gourmet restaurants, but this earns a solid 4.5, and I would go back again. The sandwiches and soups are delicious, the service first rate, and the view from the backyard patio onto the river is...More

I eat at Panini's every time I'm in Beaufort and I always get their brick oven pizza! It is hot, fresh, and unique! A bonus for this visit was a local high school band playing in the park which we enjoyed from the back patio....More
